Path to Serenity is one of my Smoky Mountains photos taken along the trail to Spruce Flat Falls in the Tremont section of the National Park. Early to mid-May is the time the Mountain Laurel bloom at this altitude. The laurel is very similar to the rhododendren that are also prevelent in the Smokies. The rhododendren tend to bloom in June and July.
For me this image has two attractions: the hillside of mountain laurel blooms, and the trail that drifts invitingly into the distance, suggesting even more relaxation and time away from the stresses of everyday life. In short, it represents why you came to the Smokies! The sense of depth in this photo is truly stunning in the large sizes.
Path to Serenity is offered in all sizes. Details of sizes and pricing can be found on at the bottom of the How to Buy page.
